Spinach, Mushroom, Bacon and Swiss Quiche

New Year, New Me. At least that’s what I keep saying but I find myself returning to some of my tried and true recipes this first week of the new year. Maybe I’m just trying to get back into my groove of working a full 5 day work week and feeling a bit short on time, but this Sunday, before the madness of the work week, I got up early and took a little extra time to make one of my favorite recipes- Spinach, Mushroom, Bacon Swiss Quiche. It’s pretty simple and I just love quiche. It’s basically a sloppy omelette baked into a puffy pie crust. What more could you ask for?

I’m not going to lie to you, this isn’t exactly your quick weekend breakfast but a big cup of coffee and some tunes going you’ll end up with a breakfast that is totally worth it and plus side- left overs for the next few mornings. This reheats really easily in the microwave before you rush out to work in the morning.

I start out by prepping my ingridients. Rinsing and chopping mushrooms and of course cooking up the bacon.

Also, bacon taste testing is totally necessary for all parties involved-

Looks pretty crisp, but better try it just to be sure.

Once I’ve cooked all my bacon I like to drain about half of the grease that has cooked off and save the rest to sauteé my mushrooms in the same pan.

I don’t buy swiss cheese very often, in fact its one of my least favorite cheese, but I did notice something odd. You can’t find it shredded? Well I’m sure you can somewhere but most of the places i’ve gone shopping around here only sell it in the slices or a block. Sometimes the block is even hard to find. Alternatively, if you don’t want to grate your own cheese and can’t find it pre-grated I have in the past used the pre-sliced pieces and just layered them throughout. Still came out just as well.

Someone still thinks shes going to be my resident bacon tester.

I’m also not going to deny that I bought a pre-made crust, the ones you roll out into your pie dish. I’ve made my own crust a lot of times in the past but I was hungry and honestly- ain’t nobody got time fo dat.

I know, I know– if I had made my own crust it probably would have fit in my dish better.

I like to sort of layer things. So a little bit of bacon..a little bit of spinach…mushroom…then a little more bacon…cheese. Ect. Just so you are sort of mixing it up a bit as you go. You’ll also want to pack down your spinach as best you can, don’t go nuts but you’ll want some room for the other ingredients. After that, pour your egg and cream mixture and I sometimes shift the filling around with a wooden spoon a little to make sure that egg mixture if getting into all the little spaces.

delicious.

I hope you are all able to find a little extra time this week to do something special for yourself. I plan to make more of an effort! It’s worth it!

Spinach, Mushroom Bacon Quiche

  • 6 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 1 lb bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 cup white mushrooms, chopped and sauteed
  • 1 1/2 cups grated swiss cheese
  • 1 pie crust
  • salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cook the bacon until crispy and chop into chunks. Sautee the mushrooms (I do this in about half the bacon fat that is left) until slightly browned. Then combine the eggs, heavy cream and salt and pepper in a bowl until thoroughly mixed together.

After you place your pie crust in your pie dish, begin to layer the spinach, mushroom, bacon and cheese, adding small layers of each alternatively so it is a bit mixed. Pour the egg mixture on top and mix slightly with wooden spoon, as best you can.

Bake for about 35-45 minutes until golden brown and eggs are set. Let stand for about 5-10 minutes and serve.
